Transitional Age Youth

The transition to adulthood can be difficult to navigate, especially for youth in their late teens or early 20s who have spent most of their lives in state care. The Home recognizes the unique issues that our youth “aging out” of the system face – including homelessness, unemployment, incarceration, early pregnancy and substance abuse—and offers resources and support designed to prepare them for their future as confident, self-sufficient adults in our community.

Our programs and services include:

In addition, The Home co-founded the statewide Task Force on Youth Aging Out of the Department of Children and Families care. This Task Force has grown to include a larger group of transitional age youth and transformed into the Transition Age Youth Coalition. For more information, visit The Children's League of Massachusetts.
